And you are just another MAGA GOPQ liar.All that may or may not be true. The fact is that, in the real world, the masks being worn by the public do diddly squat in limiting the spread of COVID-19.Your need to seek excuses for your ideological dogma is contradicted by common sense and the most up-to-date medical science.Whenever I come across folks like you, I have to wonder why you demand to remain ignorant about so many things. Are you aware that there are numerous studies proving that the masks in use by the public, serve no medical purpose whatsoever, other than to make the wearer FEEL GOOD. Don't you feel better wearing the mask believing that it is saving you, your loved ones, and the rest of the country from a COVID-19 death?Your self-assessment is harsh. Try not to be so hard on yourself.I'm really not terribly concerned about insults from a mindless, ignorant, complacent sheep, who is so damn stupid and so damn cowardly that he allows lying tyrants to deceive and intimidate him into cowering in his mother's basement, terrified of an overhyped flu bug, and who takes offense at others declining to do likewise.
Just try to respect the superiority of medical expertise in medical matters over that of your preferred failed casino operators and faded reality-tv performers. If you are shining a light up your trumper or guzzling disinfectants, you should immediately seek a doctor's advice.
Your preference for watching your fellow Americans die rather than take easy, sensible precautions to protect them as well as yourself and your loved ones is noted.Your kind ought to be the first to die on the streets, starving and homeless, from the economic destruction that you seek to impose on everyone.
Of course, the sooner we can significantly reduce the number of victims, the sooner the nation's economy will recover. Obviously, the obstinate ass-draggers are not going to lead the nation to that objective. Remember the nation was led from "Everybody's getting better!" lies to world leadership in infections and deaths under that denialism.
Just as an anecdotal confirmation of the efficacy of the recommended simple precautions, I, my, family, and my socially-responsible friends and neighbors have registered a nearly universal disappearance of cases of the common cold and flu.
Schmidlap, if you believe that masks are a wall against viruses' why aren't they working? Oh, you say they are, that's great! Please show us just some of the studies showing how many fewer individuals contracted COVID-19 that wore masks as opposed to those without.

Europe's Top Health Officials Say Masks Aren't Helpful in Beating COVID-19
The top medical experts in the world can’t decide if masks are helpful in reducing the spread of COVID-19 or just make things worse.

Denmark boasts one of the lowest COVID-19 death rates in the world. As of August 4, the Danes have suffered 616 COVID-19 deaths, according to figures from Johns Hopkins University.
That’s less than one-third of the number of Danes who die from pneumonia or influenza in a given year.
Despite this success, Danish leaders recently found themselves on the defensive. The reason is that Danes aren’t wearing face masks, and local authorities for the most part aren’t even recommending them.
Public health officials in Denmark, Holland, and beyond say they have no intention of recommending face coverings, saying the science does not support it. “Face masks in public places are not necessary, based on all the current evidence,” said Coen Berends, spokesman for the National Institute...fee.org
CDC Study Finds Overwhelming Majority Of People Getting Coronavirus Wore Masks
OCTOBER 12, 2020 By Jordan Davidson
A Centers for Disease Control report released in September shows that masks and face coverings are not effective in preventing the spread of COVID-19, even for those people who consistently wear them.
A study conducted in the United States in July found that when they compared 154 “case-patients,” who tested positive for COVID-19, to a control group of 160 participants from health care facilities who were symptomatic but tested negative, over 70 percent of the case-patients were contaminated with the virus and fell ill despite “always” wearing a mask.

1/25/2021 Masking the Science
In truth, we wish masks worked. If they did, it would be a cheap, and easy way to control the spread of Covid. The idea that they protect not only their wearer, but also those people around them seems noble. We wished masks worked because citizens are spending billions of dollars on them.
We wish masks worked because most Americans wear them now. Telling them it was unnecessary will not make them happy. We wish masks worked because they have become a symbol for virtue and social responsibility. Anyone who doubts their utility is personally attacked; as though they don’t believe the viral pandemic is real, or don’t care about those who die from it.

Flip-flop Fauci reverses—again—on double-mask-wearing
Whatever Dr. Anthony Fauci says today may be different from what he says tomorrow, but he might come back to what he said yesterday in a day or two if he feels like it.
by Carl Durrek February 1, 2021 in Healthcare
If there’s one thing that’s certain about the coronavirus, it’s that Dr. Anthony Fauci reserves the right to change whatever he’s said in the past to fit whatever narrative he needs to push forward in the present. His reversals have become so common that it’s almost impossible to keep up with his current agenda at any given moment.

Many Studies Find That Cloth Masks Do Not Stop Viruses Like COVID
By Lisa Mair

A thorough marketing campaign for the use of low-quality masks has convinced millions of people that masks will reduce COVID-19 spread, but do they really?
Much Recent Pro-Mask Research Is Deeply Flawed
The only statistically significant data on preventing viral spread is for N95 masks worn indoors when one can’t socially distance, which is not the type of mask required nor typically worn by the general public.

CDC Claims Mask Mandates Don’t Have Statistically Improved Impact on Spread of COVID Than No Masks At All – Will Therefore Continue Pushing Masks

The CDC recommends wearing masks after their study showed that related to COVID, the results of wearing masks were statistically the same as the results when not wearing masks.
CDC Claims Mask Mandates Don't Have Statistically Improved Impact on Spread of COVID Than No Masks At All - Will Therefore Continue Pushing Masks
Anyone spouting ideological dogma is, invariably demeaning and distorting empirical data. It is an emotional matter for them, not amenable to reason. Meanwhile,
The science is clear: Wearing face masks saves lives.Numerous studies have shown that masks are the single most effective way to protect yourself and others from contracting the coronavirus, which causes Covid-19.In counties that require masks, Covid-19 case and death rates slow down, according to the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).Mask mandates were associated with a 0.7 percentage point decrease in daily rates of Covid-19 deaths up to 20 days after implementation and decreases of up to 1.9 percentage points up to 100 days later, according to new research published Friday by the CDC."Masks are a two-way street. Masks protect you and me" by preventing the spread of droplets and aerosol that may contain the virus, the CDC says in its mask guidance.
The overwhelming majority of public health experts differ from failed casino operators and faded reality-tv performers in the efficacy of the simple precaution to impede the transference of the coronavirus.
A mask blocks most of the respiratory droplets one is exhaling which is where the virus lives. Instead of propelling those droplets away from you, the mask keeps them from traveling more than a few feet. Thus, we get the recommended social distancing guideline of six feet.“The spread of the virus really goes down in areas where people wear masks and it goes as down as four-to-five times reduced risk of infection when people in the community are wearing a mask than when they’re not wearing a mask,” says Dr. Dweik.Not only do masks stop those droplets from spreading when you breathe or talk, they also block keep them from traveling pretty far when you sneeze or cough.“Those actions can propel this cloud of droplets from you up to 25 or 26 feet,” Dr. Dweik says. But by wearing a mask, you greatly reduce that distance traveled.
We talked to UCSF epidemiologist George Rutherford, MD, and infectious disease specialist Peter Chin-Hong, MD, about the CDC’s reversal on mask-wearing, the current science on how masks work, and what to consider when choosing a mask.www.ucsf.edu
